At 22Z today, an area of disturbed weather was upgraded to Tropical Depression 2 just 50 miles off the coast. This will be very short-lived, as it's currently heading toward land (about 50 miles away). Intensity measured by aircraft was 30kts and 1004mb. It's located at 19.9N 95.7W and tracking WNW at 6kts. Landfall is expected later this evening on the Mexican coast as a strong TD. There's a slight chance of it reaching minimal TS status before landfall, and if it does, it would be named Bret. A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the coast between Tampico and Veracruz.Please visit my tropical Atlantic headquarters.
